The traffic light for flying cars and walkway retractable pedestrians is useless and pointless as the flying cars can just as easily fly under or over the walkways, also why does the walkway bridges need to retract and why do hover cars need to stop for pedestrians on bridges, it would be better to just have permanent walkway bridges.

Cab: Major problem. Duh what problem boss?
Scamboli: Me! I want you two to go to the school. Get every one of those pint sized parasites back to Scamboland right now!
Rodo: We're on it boss.

I loved the flying cars, hoverboards in Pinocchio 3000.
25 April 2013 | by crosswalkxSee all my reviews

I love this movie. It has flying hovercars in the city Scamboville in the sky. There are Hoverboards Mayor Scamboli, Cabby and Rodo, and Marline ride on. This movie has flying car chase scenes and flying car crashes. Best of all it has 3D hologram projectors and advanced robots.

I enjoyed the music to Pinocchio 3000. Songs like "What's the difference?" and "Welcome to Scamboland" dance. I enjoyed the instrumental music to the movie. I also liked how funny the 2 sidekick robots were and the plot to the futuristic movie of Pinocchio. It even has a message for environment people about how we shouldn't tear down, trees, plants and grass. (similar to "The Lorax" movie remake or Wall-e) It's the year 2013 and we don't have hover technology or 3D hologram technology yet curse it. I want those hoverboards, flying hovercars and 3D hologram projectors they have in "Pinocchio 3000" and become a reality. Because I'm ready for it now. Meantime this movie "Pinocchio 3000" will inspire me to build a real hoverboard.
